Sunday, October 11, 2015 – A Message from the Parish Office
Exciting changes are happening at
Saint Katharine Drexel!
First and foremost, Saint Katharine Drexel has its own app! MyParish App allows parishioners to stay up-to-date with parish news, information and contacts. The App opens up a line of communication, giving you, the parishioner, the ability to help build a stronger Parish community. Along with calendar announcements (which can be sent directly to your phone), the App contains faith-building resources and features such as daily Mass readings, Confession and prayer time reminders, access to the latest bulletin and more. To get the App, visit myparishapp.com or search for MyParish on the Apple App store or Google Play.
Second, Saint Katharine Drexel is now on Facebook. We are expanding our web presence to bring the community greater access to the activities happening at the Parish. Our Facebook page, which can be found at www.facebook.com/skdparish , is updated weekly with important events occurring not only at Saint Katharine Drexel but in the Diocese of Harrisburg (and beyond). Make sure to Like the page and share it with your circle of friends.
Third, our bulletin is the main source of communication between the Parish and the parishioners. It is important that the information printed each week is up-to-date, accurate, and meaningful to the parishioners of the parish. Our bulletin focuses primarily on activities occurring here at the parish, at our local schools, and the Cumberland Perry deanery. All announcements should be in to the parish office no later than 4 p.m. on Tuesday to make the next week’s publication. Please indicate how long you would like the article to run (ex. Next two Sundays prior to the event). Space is limited. The articles will run on a first come, first serve basis at the discretion of the pastor. Please send all articles to Catherine at email@example.com.
Last, let us not forget our parish website. The site is updated weekly showcasing many of the events at our parish and the ability to register for those events online. Our website is an excellent portal for all of the activities, programs, and special information regarding Saint Katharine Drexel. Feel free to direct others to our site so that they may see our wonderful and unique Parish.
Our Parish is growing in faith and love every day. Help us proclaim the Good News across all social mediums, proving we really are an Amazing Parish!
Prayer of Pope Francis for the Synod on the Family
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in you we contemplate the splendor of true love, to you we turn with trust.
Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that our families too may be places of communion and prayer, authentic schools of the Gospel and small domestic Churches.
Holy Family of Nazareth, may families never again experience violence, rejection and division: may all who have been hurt or scandalized find ready comfort and healing.
Holy Family of Nazareth, may the approaching Synod of Bishops make us once more mindful of the sacredness and inviolability of the family, and its beauty in God's plan.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, graciously hear our prayer. Amen.
